Low Power MCU Design Series


The number and the complexity of portable embedded devices is increasing at a rapid pace. While consumer devices such as smart phones and tablets are leading the way, other industries such as remote patient monitoring equipment and handheld POS terminals are also experiencing high growth.

Further complicating things, each portable embedded design has its own unique set of requirements and challenges. There is not a one-size-fits-all solution that is applicable in all instances. Power management must now be one of the top criteria that will affect all areas of the design, including microcontroller selection.

Mouser has partnered with three industry leaders to bring you techniques for minimizing power consumption and maximizing efficiency. Subtle changes in hardware modes, software and peripheral usage can make a huge difference in system power requirements. Learn about:

  • Energy Optimization Tools for Ultra-Low-Power Microcontrollers
    By Wolfgang Lutsch of Texas Instruments
  • Optimizing Software for Lower Power Consumption
    By Vit Stepanek of ST Microelectronics
  • Tips for Understanding and Managing the Plethora of MCU Low Power Modes
    By Jason Tollefson of Microchip Technology

These articles were featured during the Ultra-low Power System Design Workshop at Embedded World 2013 in Munich Germany on February 27, 2013.
